Andrew's Pet Page
Hi, I'm Andrew Watts and this page is designed to tell others about my pets. I
was born on March 1, 1979 and I've loved animals all my life. I've had mice,
rats, gerbils, and hamsters as pets in my early teens. My favorites are
creatures not normally considered as pets: squirrels. I have 5 flying squirrels,
1 prairie dog, and 2 ground squirrels. I used to have several hamsters, gerbils and rats. I have also had other prairie dogs, ground squirrels, and flying squirrels in the past that I still miss. Note that I refer to myself as the guardian of my pets rather than the owner.
I have had 2 species of ground squirrel; thirteen-lined and Richardson. Ground squirrels are not the kind of squirrels that climb trees and burying nuts in your yard. Gray and fox squirrels are tree squirrels, and they are the ones often found in urban areas and neighborhoods.
What I want but I don't currently have: chipmunks, any other type
of squirrel, chinchillas, degus, African pygmy hedgehogs. I'm also open-minded to keeping larger animals as well.
